Cascade Pacific Council offers ten day camps in communities throughout our service area.  Four camps serve metro areas; six serve outlying communities. Day camp offers are newest Cub Scouts a chance to experience our great camping program but also have the comfort of going home every night. Themes for day camp rotate every five years, so whether you stay at day camp or move on to resident camp, your Cub Scout will have a new experience every time they go! Each camp provides similar programs, but each also has some very unique features. Detailed information for each camp can be found in the Leaders' Guide. Below are the dates for Summer 2014:

*These day camp sessions are twilight, which means they operate during the evening hours.

Twilight Camp

Three of our camps offer a twilight camp. This means camp runs from approximately 5:00pm to 9:00pm (see camp's Leaders'Guide for specifics). You will enjoy the same jam-packed fun week at camp with these added benefits:

  • The weather is cooler in the evening!
  • Less time for parents to take off work, which means more parents will be able to volunteer!
  • Dinner is included!


Its easy to make a day camp reservation; just visit the Summer Camp Reservations Page!

Leaders Guide

The Leaders Guide gives information on what to expect when you get to camp. Download a copy here, and give it to all your leaders and parents prior to camp. This will help them and their boys be prepared for all the fun at day camp!

Camp Shirts

For every reservation that is paid in full by May 1st, each boy will be eligible to recieve a free day camp shirt. Free shirts will need to be ordered online no later than June 1st by visiting our online store. You may also purchase shirts at a discounted rate (if you are in need of more or for your adult leaders) at that time. After June 1st, your next opportunity to purchase shirts will be at camp in the camp trading posts at full price.
